Jumbo-bodied acoustics are some of the most recognizable guitars of all time and can be seen throughout the historical landscape of country, folk and rock music. With origins dating back to the original SJ-200 of the late 1930s, Gibson remains the primary driver of the body shape with players like Pete Townshend and Bob Dylan embracing jumbo Gibson acoustics at different phases of their careers. In the '60s, Guild began producing popular 12-string jumbo acoustic guitars like the F512, while today's market includes jumbo options for top brands like Takamine and Taylor.
